Looks like it could be good - I am concerned that the visuals are going to trump the gameplay. It looks like the game play could be repetitive, boring - rather than repetitive, exciting.

The're talking about a "super hit game".
Anybody knows if this is a port from somewhere? Google spits out nothing.

Default Game Impressions

Game went on Sale. Bought it, loaded it up and...


...30. Minutes later I`m sure I have played one of the strangest (in a good Way) Fantasy Puzzle (Match-3) Strategy Games this Year that does include an Tamagotchi Lite Mode too with some Roses that you can munch into Food and and probably do even more with it .

The Game is powered by Epic`s Unreal Engine so expect some Frame Drops now and then but besides that overall if you are into Strategy Puzzle Games I would advise you to buy it while it`s on Sale because the Core Gameplay Mechanics are pretty cool and there are currently not that much good Puzzle Games following in the upcoming Weeks.

4/5

Sweet review Sanuku! And as always, thanks for the video!

Really liking the match 3 mechanics here. Pretty unique, but it seems to work well.

Bought and i must to say that Sanuku was right, this game is very particular,
it's a little bit complex to start and the interface and the game mechanic are not so linear but when you're in it becomes really addictive, i'm loving the atmosphere, there's something of mesmerizing in it...by the way, i've missed the 0.99 offer so i payed the full price, i'm still thinking that it's worth it!

The game was still a dollar on the US App Store so I took a flyer on it. This is a very strange game. The tutorial is pretty obtuse and the whole menu structure and just about everything else is really strange and obscure. There may be a really good game in here somewhere if I can figure out what is going on.
